click.walk.learn tour Canberra Sat 22nd March

Hi everyone,

Saturday’s click.walk.learn tour of Canberra was a huge success!! Everyone did a ‘sun dance’ before Saturday and this beautiful city turned on a stunning Autumn day!

What a wonderful, friendly group of photographers they were! We had 5 point and shoot cameras and 3 dslr’s. Everyone learnt SO much about their cameras and photography and there was SO much creative energy!!

I always love going to Canberra. It reminds me of when I was a kid and my Dad used to take us there. I remember photographing the buildings then (with my Kodak Instamatic) and Saturday was no different..except now I have a much better camera 🙂

Do you live in Canberra and want to learn more about photography and your camera? Or do you live in Sydney and would like the opportunity to come and photograph our Nations Capital?

I’ll be putting up some new dates in the next few weeks for a basic photography course in Canberra PLUS an advanced course for anyone that would like to UP their photography skills even more!! If you are interested in coming along, please head to click.walk.learn and click on the link on the top left of the home page. That way you’ll be the first to know when the dates are released!!

These are some of the pics I took on Saturday…

enjoy
happy clicking

From my desk…all the news from click.walk.learn photography tours Sydney

Hi everyone,

How are you all? Wow, what a busy few weeks it’s been…So much has been going on with click.walk.learn…read on to find out all the news and info and how you can learn more about photography and your camera 🙂

First of all I received a wonderful testimonial this morning from a student who joined me on a tour of Cockatoo Island….

“I’ve always been told I have an OK eye for photography but I have to take lots of photos of the same thing to find something that looks good. The biggest problem of this was that I always shot in auto mode despite having a Canon DSLR camera, so naturally I don’t know what the camera has done to make it look good…
Auto mode is exactly what Christine Bernasconi of Click, Walk Learn Photography Tours promised I will never use again! With a 30 minute run through of how to set the camera to Aperture Priority mode we were off and away around picturesque Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour with Christine pointing out potential shoots with gentle guidance on what might make the shot a winner.
Aperture, depth of field, exposure compensation, even black and white – it was all informative and understandable. And what I loved was that the tour wasn’t rigid, if I saw something off to the side I could just wander away and experiment before finding my way back to the group. Christine also knows her cameras and was very patient when explaining something that took my head a while to get around.
A week later I had my critique back with very encouraging words and further advice on what I could try with the shot again in the future. Also I found friends and family who have liked my photos from the past, LOVED the photos from this tour. So if you want to simply and easily learn how to get off Auto Mode all the while exploring some great locations and taking amazing shots then I can’t recommend Click Walk Learn Photograph Tours with Christine Bernasconi enough.
And Christine was right, I will never use Auto Mode again!”
